    When your past 3 films were mediocre at best, anything looks halfway decent by comparison

    It's because people expected Saw films to suck, so the film wasn't being made with the "guarantee" that it would make bank. It needed to stand on its own two legs and rise above a reputation for slop, and the writers understood this.

    John Kramer is a massive hypocrite in the film. He gets upset that a kid gets put in a trap not meant for him. So what about in Saw 1 when a kid was part of the live or die stipulation? And it only backfired because Zepp got his ass kicked by a woman.

    When you're working with a character who is so iconic and intelligent on a truly incredible level, you are able to do things no one would otherwise think possible. There's no other character like him, and by tapping into that it is possible to elevate a film to a space that no others can accomplish.

      Oh you beat the trap? Too bad your brain doesn't dissolve instantly lmao
      The same happened with the first woman. She beats the trap but loses because of a moronic time limit. Although I will admit her trap was the first one in 10 films to make me feel physically sick.

        Strictly speaking they didn't beat the traps.
        They had a time limit before being killed, but part of the process was waiting for machinery or chemistry to work. You could argue that it's unfair that Jigsaw didn't mention this, but they did theoretically have enough time to win.
        Of course if we're going to logic this, then the girl who had to saw her leg off should have gone into shock and been unable to even finish.

          I can't really think of a time he messed up. It's just not in his character. He has unparalleled foresight and a plan for everything. Even any extent to which an audience might think he messed up almost always resolves with the revelation that he was actually multiple steps ahead of everyone. There's no one like him.

            I don't think he predicted either the scammer guy or the kid coming back to the building or that he'd be forced into the blood trap

              Did you fall asleep at the end? The whole plan hinged on the guy coming and Jiggy being put in the blood trap (presumably with Amanda not the kid who wasnt in the plan) whilst the doctor and her bf got trapped in the poison gas room.
              The dumb bit was the scammer couple not staying to watch Jigsaw die before going after the money. That was something he shouldn't have been able to control or predict but he did because Jigsaw can see the future.

                Or they would bother putting Jigsaw in the trap at all instead of just beating him to death. Or that they'd both go and get the money at the same time and that neither would stop to tie their shoelaces otherwise the entire thing would've fallen apart when the door locked with only one of them in the room.

                At least I'm less hostile about the ending of the movie relying on such contrivances now I heard that Cecilia and Parker were supposed to end up in a different trap they had to axe at the last second because of production issues. I would like to give them the benefit of the doubt and pretend whatever their original trap was, they would've fallen into it more naturally without the terrible contrivances.

    Honestly a very good question.
    Why was the writing, performances, directing etc so good compared to others? It is the 10th, and first film to come out in a while, but who exactly was it that said "Okay, we need this to not suck"?
    It definitely wasn't an accident.

    I went to see it in London and all these Muslim lasses were really into it.
    I loved the scene where that woman had to slice her own leg off and extract that sweet sweet marrow. Oh, but she did fail, because she hesitated, thus depriving the mechanism of sufficient time.

    Really surprised they haven't gone the supernatural route yet. When I was a kid I always thought Saw was about a living demonic puppet that tortured people to death, and was TERRIFIED whenever I saw (kek) the cover. John going to hell and Satan giving him abilities to create traps (like the manga Wicked Trapper) out of thin air and stuff like teleportation then his soul being returned and possessing Billy, putting people into Saw traps throughout the world would be KINO. Especially since you can start bringing in politicians and other high ranking officials that John would never have been able to reach as a human.

      It's crazy how much Cinemark dabbed on Regal here. Cinemark literally had the PopC and actually chose to make and build the legacy of both John Kramer and Billy the Puppet and then additionally their combined totem who has a different more fun-loving and tricksterish personality (JigC) who is more suitable for merchandise and promotional merchandise by making it actually extremely hard to get an actual PopC to the point where it became a collectors' item. I mean, yeah it sucks that Cinemark made them so rare that they wound up selling for huge amounts on the secondary market, but they also managed to imbue real value into the object and the things that it symbolizes by making what is not only objectively the best popcorn but also one that is multifunctional in a way that reflects the philosophy and engineering expertise of John Kramer. You can't tell me there isn't something exquisitely Rube Goldbergian about first enjoying the popcorn so that it coats the interior of the PopC with delicious salty butter and then pouring a Coke (or even a higher quality, craft cola) into the PopC and then pouring 2-3 shots of bourbon and tons of ice stirred perfectly to dilute the liquor to an extent and bring out additional flavor notes to create the perfect wienertail for enjoying the Saw films or otherwise adjacent content.

        I'm still excited to see what they do with the release of XI. They shouldn't cheapen what they already achieved in terms of creating the best popcorn vessel. They also shouldn't make it less rare. But if there is a way for them to create a distinct vessel that honors the previous achievement in the admittedly very niche and generally gauche medium while also celebrating the history of the franchise and the fact that they are about to make it to eleven mainline series entries, a feat that no other major horror franchise has achieved, I certainly won't complain.

      Wait until Saw XI reveals that the events of X was actually the DMT dream of John as he died, with XI being a psychedelic dream adventure where John has to put various personifications of the parts of his personality into traps (that he feels the pain of) and ultimately end up in heaven.
